Raymarine ST 60 Wind Vane

The anemometer on my Raymarine ST 60 Wind Vane appears to be faulty, as it fails to revolve until the wind speed is above 6-7 knots.

Does anyone know if I can apply any sort of lubrication to its bearing mechanism, if so, what should I use?

If no maintenance is possible, can I purchase a new windvane, with the support rod and locking ring, if so, what is the part number and cost?

Many thanks, Allan

You may well find that Raymarine will repair the unit, you will have to send it to Portsmouth. Have a look on their website.

You can either send it away to raymarine to get it serviced. ie... new bearings cups and vane or buy the bits yourself to do ie... bearings, (vane and cups often on ebay)

Or buy a new one. we actually lost ours during the winter storms bought a new one from Greenham Regis southampton (very helpful chaps) for £180 pounds fit's straight on to the locking block on top of the mast part number R28170 see here.

Once fitted you need to change the calibration factor and spin the boat through a few circles to linerize the needle.

I had the same problem and found that the unit is quite easy to disassemble and the tiny roller bearings are a standard size so can be bought from a bearing specialist - I think I got mine from BSL

'cos I'm a bodger, I removed the cups, squirted in some easing oil (red can from motor factor, can't remember the name) and it all started rotating much more easily and that was nearly 3 years ago.
Two trips up the mast was all it took.
